Dennis McCann vs. John Chuwa
Royal Albert Hall, London, England – 10/7/21
Dennis McCann has vowed to return to his devastating best when he faces John Chuwa at the Royal Albert Hall next month.
Undefeated McCann (9-0, 5 KOs) faces Chuwa (20-4, 10 KOs) on a Queensberry Promotions show in London on July 10, live on BT Sport.
McCann has gone the eight-round distance in his last two outings, but feels that those performances weren’t true reflections of what he is capable of, and is promising a much more devastating display against Chuwa.
McCann said: “I overcooked myself a little bit, to be honest with you. That is the problem with me, I over-train, but I am ready to fight now and I can’t wait to get in the ring.
“Listen, it is all about getting the wins, that is most important because you can’t always entertain people. He (Moreno) was also a bit of a puncher and you don’t punch with a puncher. I felt like I could have got him out of there, but I listened to the instructions from the corner and Al (Smith) was trying to hold me back a bit.
“He wouldn’t let me off the leash! I was fighting to orders and I’ve got to listen to my coach because he has got me to where I am today.
“No it hasn’t gone and you just have to adapt to your opponent. You’d be a fool to punch with a puncher – who does that? – and you don’t want to get caught because it only takes one shot and it could be game over. You can take out the kids who ain’t punchers, but when you are fighting a puncher you don’t want to swing with him.
“So I got the job done knowing I could have stopped him, but Al wouldn’t let me. In this next fight, trust me, I am coming for the big knockout.
“The fun stuff hasn’t gone, you know me, Dennis the Menace and I am coming for the big knockout next time. I got the rounds in though and bashed him up every round, dropping him once, so you can’t ask for much more.
“You get people calling you out here and there, so it makes no difference to me. They want my name, all these prospects want my name, it is common sense. They probably look at my social media and everything else, see me getting the limelight, so they all want a piece of me.
“But do they really want a piece of me? They’ll all name me but won’t fight me. If they are my weight they can get it, but don’t just say you are coming to my weight.
“I could say I am coming down to flyweight, but I am not coming down to flyweight, am I? So if they are at my weight and on my path I am happy to bash any of them up.”
